It's Christmas Eve And Something Odd Is Happening
A small girl is in bed on Christmas Eve when she hears a
"Jingle--Jingle!"She goes downstairs to investigate and immediately notices that the snack she's left for Santa is nearly gone except for crumbs, which she follows down a hallway. When she hears a squeak she turns to see a mouse who is holding a piece of cookie. He decides to follow her. The two soon discover an elf. The three travel throughout the house adding a reindeer and Santa to the line.
So the five settle down on a Christmas Eve.
"Sharing treats as the night slips away."
What Concerned Me: I have to admit that the title egged me on to read this book. In fact, I was excited to write a review . . . until I read it. Unfortunately, the title doesn't really have any more to do with the story than Santa, Mouse, and Reindeer. The elf is just enjoying Christmas Eve with the lonely little girl who apparently needs cheering up.
What I Liked Most: If you're looking for a book about friendship, not necessarily an elf story, this book will work.
